12-9-8-17-17-4-17 Slasher.

Not a bad WS too, if you bump CN a little. If going WS though, I'd prefer 17-9-8-17-17-4-12, and still raise CN twice.

He is similar to a warrior I recently graduated. He was an aimed blow that was 19-6-3.
So, I would go 12-9-8-17-17-4-17 aimed blow.

For what it's worth I echo Floyd on this RU.

If I went WS/PL I would think about going either:

17-9-8-17-17-4-12 WS/PL

Or

15-10-8-17-17-4-13 WS/PL

Love your triplett!
Wouldn't go any other way.
Would likely gravitate to a slasher, although we suspect the best advice is LU.

GOOD LUCK!

When you truly can make any style, make the one you want to! The only style I personally couldn't roll this guy as is PS. But I wouldn't take the triple 17 design for all styles.

Just for conversation's sake, why not a PS? Not enough speed? (my best PS ever had a 4 SP) Or just the fact that PS's generally suck, and it would be a waste of a good rollup?

I vote for they suck

I think it has something to do with the trip 17 design and the Striker and Parry Strike styles. I tried making a few of them over the years and have heard others say they have as well and it seems like they always came back at mode or worse in bonuses and under achieved in the arena so bad it frustrated the manager to the point of DA'ing them.

Looking at the 'obvious' design, 12-9-8-17-17-4-17 PS, you've got a piker with poor physicals, terrible decise, and mediocre parry. That sounds like a recipe for disaster, especially when virtually every other style could be successful mode. From a pure skill standpoint, I want my pikers to be strong in at least one of the two skills they'll learn naturally (parry or decise)

Actually thinking about it, I could make this into a Piker, too, but the design would look something like 17-10-8-13-17-4-13 (+2 points somewhere) and that kind of wastes the wit on the warrior, so I still wouldn't do it.

I would not crucify anyone for making this into a piker and won't even say it can't work. Just that I wouldn't do it for the reasons listed above
